When would I use Descriptive.Link?

Most URLs are difficult to read, so sending a "descriptified" link encourages friends, clients, and other viewers to open your shared link since it's now user-friendly and clear! You are able to demystify, add a teaser, pose a question, or simply say: "Check this out!" in the actual link. You might find that your "descriptified" URL replaces your entire email!

Suppose you want to share this link to this YouTube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ The link by itself has no context.

Simply paste that URL above and then type "This is a cool YouTube video I think you would like, totally not a Rick Roll!!" to create the URL: http://descriptive.link/this-is-a-cool-youtube-video-i-think-you-would-like-totally-not-a-rick-roll

Perhaps you like shopping at Amazon or Ebay and want to share something great with a friend. Instead of sharing a long, convoluted link:

http://www.amazon.com/Anchorman-Legend-Burgundy-Will-Ferrell/dp/B008LXZFH6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1418242102&sr=8-1&keywords=anchorman

"Descriptify it" and simply call it: http://descriptive.link/anchorman

But don't many URL shorteners already let you use keywords in your shortened URLs?

They do, but some charge for this service, and most require you to sign up for an account. We also encourage you to make your URLs as long and as descriptive as possible.
